    As good English skills are essential for app testers, there are certainly multiple ways to overcome this language barrier and be able to write great software test reports. For example, there are websites as well as applications for translation and grammar correcting that you can rely on if you have some basic knowledge about English and how to use it.

    Here are our top 4 picks for Android apps that will help you write high-quality application test reports with ease.

    Google Translate

    Translate by Google is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best translation app. It uses Artificial Intelligence and many other Machine Learning-based technologies to provide you the best and most accurate translations overall.

    Microsoft Translator

    A solid alternative to our number one spot comes from Microsoft. Translator is pretty simple to use and works offline too.

    Yandex.Translate & @YTranslateBot for Telegram

    Yandex.Translate is just as good as our other recommendations. It works with no Internet connection and can be used inside Telegram via the @YTranslateBot, which is fantastic!

    Grammarly Keyboard

    Knowing and using the right words is important, but just as important is the order you write them in. Grammarly can help you accomplish this somewhat difficult task with its extraordinary spell checking and outta world grammar correcting features.

    Last month Telegram announced a new design contest for developers from around the world. Their purpose has been to spice up the interest of some clever minds and give them a platform to showcase their fresh design and coding ideas, with the added benefit of giving them prizes and hiring them later down the line. The latter is perhaps, mostly applicable for winners who are good enough to pass all stages of the contest and prove themselves to be worthy, though job opportunities by other companies may come up too.

    March Contest

    So, the March contest's winners for Android were announced over the past week. The original goal was to develop a fast and easy to use software for displaying charts in either JavaScript, Android Java or iOS Swift, with a sample data originally provided by Telegram. Included were sections for profile/channel/group activities and based on this information, there is a great chance that we will see such a feature implemented into the official clients of the messaging service shortly.

    The winner of the March Android Contest is @thankyou2 who has received $50,000 as a gift. Looks like his app has been the only one to comply 100% with the published design guidelines and has been the best performer in terms of reliability and speed even on older Android devices. His sample APK, including apps from other winners, were all posted on the Telegram Contests channel, which you can test if you wish.

    Note that Stage 2 of the contest is running at the moment and submissions will end on April 15.

    A new beta update for the fancy Smart Launcher 5 is now available on Google Play for all registered testers. This release, version 5.2 build 031 to be precise, appears to add in a dark theme option which comes together with a small number of nice customizations. Please, take a look at the release notes and stay tuned for our detailed feature walkthrough afterward.

    What’s new

    • Added "AMOLED Black", an option to make the dark mode even darker.
    • You can now select 4 different options to automatically enable the Dark mode Always on / Follow system settings / During night time / On dark wallpapers
    • Many other improvements related to dark mode.

    Dark mode

    Dark mode has been the one feature that everyone is working on supporting due to Google's recent admission that it brings pretty huge battery life gains, finally! Smart Launcher 5 has also jumped on that same bandwagon, but with an even better version of dark mode in tow - AMOLED black mode. As you can guess from the title of this report, you can choose between two variants of how the background colors to be set throughout the app. To enable it and do further personalizations, go into the settings of the app - Global appearance - Dark mode. There are a couple of selections about when it should go on, like according to your system settings, during the night, etc.

    I am certainly glad that there are more and more app developers who are striking to support dark mode in their apps.
